Reading and translating the parsha with commentary. The possuk about Shabbos is plural, the possuk about the Mishkan is singular. Malacha: is Shabbos guided by 39 kinds of work, or is it really something else? Making something new, moving from private domain to public doman, change form. Why did Hanoch the shoemaker ascend to the highest heights. Shabbos: the opportunity to divest yourself of your workplace identity, put down your burden. People whose heart lift them up and people whose spirits volunteer them; which is better? Words: Mishkan, to do/make, asemble/congregate, sit/dwell/settlement, angel/messenger/work.
